Jaguar Tri-Fest, billed as ‘the first sporting festival of its kind to launch in the UK’. has announced Sport Relief as its official charity partner.
‘Combing triathlon with up and coming acoustic musical talent, high-end glamping experience and delicious food and drink, Jaguar Tri-Fest is set to be an unforgettable weekend in July.’
Sport Relief, alongside headline sponsor Jaguar, will be working closely with the Tri-Fest founders to deliver the event experience. Set to take place at Dorney Lake in Windsor, South East England – home to the London 2012 Olympics – from 20-21 July 2019, Jaguar Tri-Fest is ‘expected to attract thousands across the two-day event’.
Speaking about the charity partner, Chad James, Jaguar Tri-Fest Co-Founder said “From the initial planning stages of Jaguar Tri-Fest, there was one charity we were particularly passionate about and wanted to get onboard. Today, we are thrilled to announce that our official charity partner for 2019 is Sport Relief.
“Sport Relief is about using the amazing power of sport and movement to raise money and tackle the critical issues affecting people across the UK and the world. Their vision is to create a just world free from poverty, and we believe we can truly help to make a difference by raising much-needed funds through Jaguar Tri-fest.”
Morgan Jones, Head of Creative at Sport Relief, said: “Jaguar-Tri-fest represents a fantastic opportunity for us to look at new ways to connect with people who love sport, health and fitness in a fun and challenging new context. We’re really looking forward to helping build this unique event from the ground up and giving people an opportunity to take the sport they love doing and use it to help us raise money to invest in brilliant projects in the UK and around the world.”
Ali Styles, Fundraising Manager at Sport Relief, added “We are really excited for people to take on this event and challenge themselves both physically and through fundraising. On the day we will be there to cheer people along and we are already working on some great ways to bring people together.”
The organising team added that ‘By taking part and fundraising for Sport Relief through Jaguar Tri-Fest, the event will provide a chance for people to do something extraordinary and make it count.’
